Laura is 17 today. Time is going just too fast. It only feels like yesterday we were celebrating her 16th birthday.
She is growing into a lovely young lady who knows what she wants and has the will power to strive for it.
She has no time for idiots but still knows how to enjoy herself.
Last year she had a bit of a rough time with studying for her GCSE's, cancelled operations, her friend moveing to a different school, it all go too much. But to see her so happy now and laughing more is wonderful.
She's enjoying college even though they're long days with an hours travel each way.
We and the rest of the family are wishing her a fantastic birthday.
P.S. It was a sad day yesterday as the library, as we know it, closed it's doors for the last time. I went in to see the ladies in the afternoon when I'd ,finished work, and found them drinking wine and eating cakes left over from the McMillan coffee morning. Some staff are taking redundancy but others have to apply for other jobs and are up against their friends for the same jobs and there are so few jobs. I feel so sorry for them.
